French documentary photographer Bénédicte Kurzen began her career covering conflict in the Gaza Strip, Iraq and Lebanon. For the past 10 years her focus has been on Africa, exploring post-apartheid society in South Africa and more recently focusing on Nigeria. A grant from the Pulitzer Centre allowed her to produce a Nigerian body of work entitled 'A Nation Lost To Gods'.
